This is a great route. Col de Telegraphe can be a bit busy, but Galibier is a real gem. One of the most fun roads in the French Alps. My friend, Colin Barlow rode the Alps for more than 20 summers, and this was arguably his favorite pass of them all.
Yes, lots of cyclists, changeable conditions, rather narrow towards the top, but really not be missed if you're in the area. Also, parts of it were newly resurfaced in 2011. I'll post some videos of Telegraphe to Galibier to Lauteret.
